Dylusions, Distress Paint and A Paper Doll

Written by Kristy on . Posted in Cards

Card Made using Distress Paints, Dylusions Spray Inks and Prima Mixed Media Doll Stamp

Hi everyone,

I was very excited today to be able to try out the new colours of Dylusions Spray Inks and Distress Paints as well as a beautiful new paper doll stamp from Prima.  So far I am loving the new colours of Dylusions, especially the white linen and I am looking forward to spending some more time using them.  It will come as no suprise that I also really like the new distress paints too and also look forward to using them more too.  

So for todays card I picked out some colours I knew I would like and went to work making this card.

 I used the Dylusions Spray Inks (Calypso Teal, After Midnight and White Linen) with some Prima stencils to make the background.  It is good to experiment and add more layers until you are happy with the look.  I applied 3 coats of different distress paints (Weathered Wood, Broken China and Chipped Sapphire) across some card to make the lower part of the card, making sure to dry them in between so they didn't blend.  I just did this to get a bit of feel for how liquid the paint would be and to see how it would look applied to the paper.  I swiped it in a way that left the lines of the paint to give it a bit of a textured but you could apply it more thickly to get a more solid/opaque effect.

I also used the some of the paints (Antique Linen, Broken China and Walnut stain) to paint my stamped image.  I have lots of ideas for ways to use this cute mixed media doll stamp.  I also used some of the Dylusions Spray ink to paint some of the image (I just sprayed it onto my craft sheet and then used a paint brush).

I used the Broken China distress paint to colour the Kaisercraft wooden corner and found the coverage really good and it was quick to dry.  

All in all, if you like distress products I am pretty sure you will like the new addition to the family.  The distress paint was really easy to use and is different to the other acrylic paint dabbers that I have.  Be sure to stop back over the next couple of weeks for more projects using Dylusions Spray Inks and Distress Paints.

Thanks for stopping by,
